ALEKS PPL scores are used alongside other measures to determine a student’s preparedness for a given mathematics course. Some courses require students to meet or exceed a given score; for other courses certain score thresholds are recommended.

The following ALEKS PPL score requirements/recommendations are in effect for all students:

Course | ALEKS PPL score needed to enroll |
---|---|

MATH 112 | 40% required |

MATH 115 or MATH 234 | 65% required |

MATH 220, 221 | 80% required |

MATH 101 | 20% recommended |

MATH 103, 112, 114, 117, 119, 181 | 50% recommended |

MATH 124, 125 | 65% recommended |

To enroll in MATH 112, 115, 220, 221, or 234, students must obtain the minimum required ALEKS PPL placement score (as shown in the preceding table).

### When to take the ALEKS PPL

Placement windows open prior to each semester or session that students can enroll in required math courses. Upcoming placement windows are as follows:

**For Spring 2024 semester:**Sept. 18, 2023 – Jan. 22, 2024**For Summer (S2) 2024 session:**February 12, 2024 – June 14, 2024**For Fall 2024 semester:**April 15, 2024 – August 30, 2024
